The new 14-track, 55-minute album, ‘So Beautiful And So Dangerous,’ is the culmination of years of work and evolution since the previous CD ‘The Lathe Of Heaven’ (2003). The music crosses industrial, electronic, acoustic, experimental, shoegaze, and metal. The album was designed to stand up not just as individual songs, but as a whole. Musical and lyrical themes repeat in different songs, each one fades into the next. The recordings were professionally mastered to sound best on the CD format.
The cover will be a full-color digipak with an 8-page booklet of lyrics, detailed credits, and original art photography, some of which is seen in the preview video on the kickstarter page. The CD itself will also have full-color offset printing. In a time when things seem increasingly ephemeral and disposable, the idea was to make something worth holding in your hand and looking at as you listen, to be immersed in a particular world of music, words, and imagery.
Dream Into Dust is the main project of Derek Rush. It also features Bryin Dall of Thee Majesty. The pair also work together as A Murder Of Angels, whose darkambient soundscapes inform the instrumental interludes on the new album.
Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing funding service that gives artists a platform to raise money to get their projects made. Anyone can donate $1 or more, but there are numerous rewards packages for those who give more. These include copies of the new album, items from the band’s back catalogue, t-shirts, and framed and signed original art photos by Rush.
The campaign lasts until the morning of March 15th. For further details and to pledge to the project, see http://kck.st/wiyOom
